The Ministry of Agriculture is committed to ensuring that grape growing in Hungary has as little environmental impact as possible and that wines are produced as energy-efficiently as possible, Minister of Agriculture István Nagy stated at the meeting organized on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the International Organization of Viticulture and Oenology in Brescia, Italy on Friday.

According to agroinform.hu, the minister drew attention to the fact that environmental protection and sustainability have changed the habits of consumers, which has a significant impact on agriculture and the food industry. 

The vast majority of wine products consumed in Hungary were produced in Hungary, so the carbon footprint of this area in the country is low, the ministry said.
